Yes, that’s my full name :-)

Jay Sean Cash Money Album Launch London


Last Friday night, Vik and I were invited to witness Jay Sean and Birdman blow most new artists whole album budget on one party.  London hasn’t seen anything like this for a long time.  Guests included Birdman and Slim of Cash Money, Rihanna, Ice-T, Alesha Dixon, Manny Norte, Reggie Yates (with Jay-Z wardrobe in tow), Craig David and many more.

Very big event for the UK music industry, indie artists, and for south Asian artists.  This guy is in unchartered territory and scouring the landscape very well.  Jay Sean’s album ‘All or Nothing’ is out now.  Purchase links are at  Props to Kodak for the Zi8 cameras we used.
